    Whose 500E did I see at Bellevue detailing shop?

    Looks like some serious detailing work being done. I would like to know where you got the rims done....

    I saw a 199 500e in Kirkland a few months ago being hauled up onto a tow truck . It had aftermarket wheels but I canít remember which. Only other that Iíve seen is a high mileage 040 car. There were a few at the show and shine last year too... a smoke silver with matching lowers and a red one that I believe belongs to 2phast.

    I thought about it but didn't take any pics in case owner wanted privacy. That's why I didn't list the name of the shop. The wheels are 8 hole factory wheels and really liked the finish on them and hence, wondering where they were done. Both of my cars can use bit TLC on the wheels and I am not ready to put in time and energy to sand/paint etc. yet.

    Speaking of 2phast, he sent me a local seattle recommendation for wheel refinishing that I have yet to look into. Its an old reference, so they might not be around any longer, but i can forward to you if youíd like!

    Sure, that would be great. Found a shop that does machining since that was the look on 1995 wheels but is bit pricey.

    Yes, that's the place. Same color as my E320 and E420. I wasn't sure where you got the wheels done but they look nice.

    So funny! It came off the truck 3-4 weeks ago and I've only seen it once. After the timing chains and suspension work, I'm told it drives like a "new" car. We'll see.

    Joey at ESA is a magician when it comes to detailing cars. He did the oem wheels but I've a new set of Evo IIs on the way.

    That's where I take my cars and he does great job on them.
    Where did you get the suspension work done?
